Where are the built-in powershell activities?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
 
Hi, searching the web I found many blog posts  about early versions of Workflow 4.0 and I found references to some built-in powershell activities, but I couldn't find them in VS2010 Beta 2 nor RC. Where are them? Thank you

Built-In Functions Fundamentals

  
While your primary job as a database developer consists of creating lists, probably your second most important job is to assist your users with the various assignments they must perform on your application. One way you can assist is to use functions that perform otherwise complex tasks. We introduced and described functions in the previous lesson. To assist your development with the different tasks of a database, Transact-SQL ships with various already created and tested functions. You just need to be aware of these functions, their syntax, and the results they produce.

To assist you with managing Microsoft SQL Server databases, Transact-SQL provides many built-in stored procedures.

Built-in Functions - Text and Image Functions in SQL Server

  
Text and image functions operate on TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. These data types are deprecated with SQL Server 2005 and should be replaced by VARCHAR(MAX), NVARCHAR(MAX) and VARBINARY(MAX) when possible. Alternatively you can also consider storing large string values using XML data type. Text and image functions are nondeterministic.

Future versions of SQL Server will not support TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. Columns with TEXT / NTEXT data type do not support commonly used string functions such as LEN, LEFT, RIGHT, etc. Furthermore, due to the large size of TEXT data you''re likely to see performance issues if you store such data in the database. However, at times you can''t help but use the TEXT / NTEXT / IMAGE data types (for example when supporting 3rd party databases when you cannot change the schema) - this is when text and image functions come in handy.

Built-in Functions - Aggregate Functions

  
Aggregate functions return a single value summarizing a given data set. All aggregate functions are deterministic. NOTE: AVG, SUM, STDEV, STDEVP, VAR and VARP functions cannot operate on BIT data types; they can operate on all other numeric data types.

Built-in Functions - Date and Time Functions

  
Date and time functions allow you to manipulate columns and variables with DATETIME and SMALLDATETIME data types.

Built-in Functions - String Functions

  
String functions let you extract various portions of character strings, change the case of strings, concatenate and reverse strings and perform many other types of manipulations. All built-in string functions are deterministic with the exception of CHARINDEX and PATINDEX

Office 2003: Bring the Power of Visual Studio .NET to Business Solutions Built with Microsoft Office

  

Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System is a new technology that brings the advanced features of Visual Studio .NET and the .NET Framework to apps built on Microsoft Word 2003 and Excel 2003. Now you can use Visual Basic .NET and C# to write document-centric, managed code solutions that run in-process with Word 2003 or Excel 2003, taking advantage of the rich object models they expose. Along the way you get the benefits of the managed environment in which a fully compiled .NET-based application executes, including code access security.
